Things are heating up. The big guns moved on again in the second round, with the biggest upset being Padme Amidala beating out Yoda with a last second buzzer beater. Wicket again marched on improbably with a win over the Witch King. Wow. King Theoden couldn't quite sneak out a win over Gollum. Luke beat his old buddy Wedge after some early concern.
All my favorite upset possibilities- Wedge, Witch King, Merry, Grand Moff Tarkin, King Theoden- are gone, but that is the way of the tournament.
We got some great 3rd round matches, really what the tournament was created for.
Wow, these are what Sci-Fi nerds dreams are made of.
Some stats on the tourney so far, you know to make me look even more dorky.
